When the heart does not beat regularly ...

Palpitations, heart that does not beat regularly, discomfort, or loss of consciousness ... can reveal an abnormal heartbeat. It is after seeing a doctor and passing exams that a diagnosis will be made.

There are several types of heart rhythm disorders. The most common is atrial fibrillation (or atrial fibrillation), which affects 750, 000 people in France. In this case, it will also be mainly about this cardiac anomaly.

When the heart does not beat regularly, it is necessary to quickly make a cardiac evaluation, and to diagnose the problem. Because one of the major risks is the occurrence of a cerebrovascular accident (cerebral attack), especially in case of atrial fibrillation. This is why we must quickly take care of the patient to avoid as much as this kind of problem occurs.

Fortunately, we have different treatments, and new drugs that were marketed a short time ago.

This file, which focuses on the cardiac rhythm disorder, and especially atrial fibrillation, details the causes, the consequences, and of course also its treatments. To read: the advice of the medical specialist, as well as the testimony of Damien who benefited from a radiofrequency treatment that allowed his heart to reshape normally.
